The West Irondequoit Central School District appointed Mr. John Brondon its interim Deputy Superintendent at Thursday’s regularly scheduled Board of Education study session. A veteran administrator, Brondon will take over for Dr. Tim Terranova, who starts next month as the Superintendent of Victor Central Schools. Terranova’s last day at West Irondequoit is Feb. 13.

On Monday, Brondon wrapped up an 11-month stint as interim Superintendent of the Avon Central School District. He took over there for Dr. Aaron Johnson after Johnson departed to become West Irondequoit’s new Superintendent last March.

"The departure of Dr. Terranova leaves large shoes to fill,” Johnson said of the man who has worked 27 years in West Irondequoit, including the last 5½ as Deputy Superintendent. “To afford ourselves the time to conduct a comprehensive and inclusive search for a replacement, I am excited to have Mr. Brondon join our team. As a retired Assistant Superintendent for Personnel with 38 years of experience in education, Mr. Brondon brings a wealth of knowledge along with a strong reputation for being a supportive and collaborative leader."

Brondon worked in the Gates Central School District for 33 years, retiring in 2016 as its assistant Superintendent for Administration and Personnel. Johnson and Brondon worked together at Gates Chili when Johnson taught biology and later served as an Assistant Principal at Gates Chili High School. Brondon was interim Principal at Avon in 2017-18 during Johnson’s tenure as Superintendent. He also was Avon’s high school Principal from 1999 to 2001. Brondon’s administrative career began as an Assistant Principal at Palmyra-Macedon in 1992. He started teaching at Gates Chili in 1982.

Brondon and his wife, Judy, have been married 38 years. They have three grown children and seven grandchildren.
